College of Commercial Arbitrators’ Diversity Policy
The College of Commercial Arbitrators endeavors to raise awareness and understanding among our Fellows of the critical importance of diversity within the College and among commercial arbitrators in general. The College of Commercial Arbitrators believes in equal opportunities for all, regardless of color, religion, sex, national origin, disability or any other legally protected classification. The College will work to enhance participation, inclusion and leadership opportunities for arbitrators with diverse backgrounds in the College and its programs, committees and initiatives. The College of Commercial Arbitrators strongly encourages its Fellows to identify and nominate qualified arbitrators to become Fellows of the College. In 2012, the College of Commercial Arbitrators established an Outreach Committee whose sole purpose is to achieve greater diversity among its members.
